Scar, a poem by Rojan Zét

A sharp knife, my strong hand, your name cut
into a tree on this land marks that moment,Rojan Zét is the resident poet of the Cowichan Valley Arts Café
all those years, one moment in time, when my
heart was yours and I thought you were mine.
Seven years later our bridges are burned, this
tree has grown bigger and when I returned put
my hand out to figure those letters I carved
but this bark still growing had covered your
name and nothing is showing not even a letter,
the trail of a line, but I knowing better feel
a knot in my gut and my bark that now covers
the scar from your cut.

Rojan Zét
